Trim Triminey, Trim Triminey, Trim Trim Trimroo

I spent a good portion of yesterday trimming.  I tell you what, it takes a while, and is quite monotonous, but there is nothing like a pile of perfect HST's.  They just make piecing a breeze :)  And then you get the bonus of the super happy trim pile.  Someone wrote a while back that they keep their trim in jars as decor in their sewing room.  What a fun idea.  I think I need to be on the look out for some cute glass containers :)    I can't show the project these HST's will go in for a bit but anyone want to venture a guess as to what line I was using in my HST's??  Well make it fun and the first per to guess it right will get a pattern of their choice :)  EDIT - First Comment and it was right, Congrats Cindy, it is Daydream by Kate Spain ;)


Oh and I had to share this fun little shot from my trimming session.  Josie was in my sewing room playing behind me while I trimmed away.  I thought she was playing with her toys but upon turning around I found that she would rather play with my thread cones.  Snap Shot time!! (and please forgive the horrible flash on the floor, once I took one shot she wasn't willing to not look at the camera ;)   I asked her what she was making and she said a train.  I tried to join in the train building but she was rather particular about what color order the cones were in and preferred me to just watch.  So stinking cute!!!


Thanks for popping in today and have a Happy Quilting Day!!

  8. A quilter in the making! My kids are both in their mid-40's. They have both told me that one of their favorite sounds from thier childhoods was the sewing machine as I stitched.My son did qualify that. He said he didn't like when it made the TV mess up. LOL

  9. I knew it was going to be Daydream. I can't wait to see what it becomes! Also, I kind of love it when my kids play with my sewing stuff. My 2 year old son likes to pull fabric from my drawers and "push" it through the sewing machine when it's turned off. He'll also put a piece of fabric under one of my rulers like I do when I'm cutting it out. I love it.
    p.s. I've had that song stuck in my head ALL MORNING!

  14. Now I will have to go watch Mary Poppins. Neat shot of your daughter at play with the thread cones. I like the idea of putting the decorative trims in jars or a clear Christmas ornament.

  16. I save my trimmings all year and give them to the birds in the spring. When I walk around my yard I can catch glimpses of my trimmings in their nests! Recycling at it's best!

  17. I knew what song you were doing right away. Why do people look at me funny when I start singing songs with my own words in them?

  18. I am so glad to have learned about trimming HSTs...I agree 100%...monotonous, but SO worth it...my trimmings always live for awhile in a pretty dish on some out of the way shelf, where only I notice them...til the next batch :)
